Residential Architecture: Hilltop House by Openbox Company: “..the design for the Hilltop House revolved around the rocky and forested landscape. Hilltop House is a small house in a big plot of land.. a simple brief with a tremendous opportunity to explore various aspects of relationships and connections, between a room and another room, out-door to in-door space, from man-made elements and natural elements..The overall structural concept was based on very few columns and footings, elevating the house above the pile of stones, leaving most of the stones and existing contours untouched. Base materials were raw concrete surface and cement screed to express the raw “nature” of construction materials, and helped to avoid problems with paint against the high humidity of tropical rain forest surrounding..” Truly lovely site, distinct indoor/outdoor sensibility, lush vegetation, extensive glazing, marvelous filtered light, contextual sensibility..
